Taking inspiration from inverse reinforcement learning, the proposed Direct Value Learning for Reinforcement Learning (DIVA) approach uses light priors to gener- ate inappropriate behavior’s, and use the corresponding state sequences to directly learn a value function. When the transition model is known, this value function directly defines a (nearly) optimal controller. Otherwise, the value function is extended to the (state,action) space using off-policy learning.
The experimental validation of DIVA on the Mountain car shows the robustness of the approach comparatively to SARSA, based on the assumption that the tar- get state is known. Lighter assumptions are considered in the Bicycle problem, showing the robustness of DIVA in a model-free setting.
